Hornet Microlights Supreme 440 / 440 Dual

 

The Supreme 440 is identical to the 440 Dual except that the chrome-plated joint pieces and electric start are fitted as standard.
While some manufacturers of big-engined two-seat trikes recommend that ballast should be carried when flying solo, Hornet prefer instead to reduce the throttle opening, saying that, thanks to the lift characteristics of the Cutlass CD wing, the solo pilot can take-off quite quickly even on part throttle.
